I am passionate about working with clients holistically and helping to empower them and make their lives more rewarding and fulfilling through NLP,Hypnotherapy and Life Coaching.
In 1999 I felt very dissatisfied with life. I was successful in my career but felt lost and unfulfilled. This feeling of dissatisfaction led me to start a journey of study in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) which was completely life changing. In fact it was so life changing that after only 4 days in to the course,I decided to hand in my notice on my then full time,highly paid,senior role and started up my own company:Personal Success Training and Coaching. In 2001,I qualified as a Master Practitioner in NLP and had already made huge changes in my life both personally and professionally.
I have always been interested in personal development and in particular helping people overcome the issues that hold them back. I have suffered with anxiety and panic attacks myself when I was in my early 20’s and understand how limiting and debilitating this was for me personally and how it held me back in my life. Thankfully,I no longer suffer with panic attacks and certainly my studies in Hypnotherapy,NLP,Counselling and Emotional Freedom Technique have helped me to understand myself better and overcome my own issues.
Since 1999 I have worked with clients on many different issues and have enjoyed helping others to make exciting and long lasting changes in their lives. Clients have enjoyed learning and using the creative and effective techniques of NLP and have benefited from the long lasting subconscious changes and relief that Hypnotherapy can bring to their lives.
I enjoy seeing clients blossom and find it deeply rewarding to use my skills to empower them to make the changes that they want and to improve their lives.
I am also passionate about training and developing others and sharing my skills and expertise in my field. I therefore run many workshops throughout the year,which offer an alternative option for people to access these therapies and apply the skills to their own lives,even if they cannot currently commit to regular sessions in hypnotherapy or NLP coaching.
